Lighthouse That Never Was
The great looking Camp. St. Lighthouse that now houses a glass studio never really was a functional light. It was built by the Lighthouse for the Blind, a charity, then later sold as they moved to new offices. It is a wonderful building on a well traveled street close to the Ogden Museum where I docent at times.
I walked that area and took many photos but finally settled on painting the light next to the light. The old gas light glowing near the lighthouse that no longer functions. I sell prints, framed and unframed, tiles, postcards, note cards, and other gift items of this and the other lighthouses near New Orleans. Many of which were destroyed by the storm. My way of preserving what I grew up seeing in my home town. To see more New Orleans area lighthouse prints visit Fig Street Art Studio on the web.
